Archbishop To Builders: Abortion Mill Or Church?

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of New Orleans has issued an ultimatum to builders in the city:

Any person, organization, or business that assists in any way with the “acquisition, preparation, and construction” of a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in New Orleans is “cooperating with the evil that will take place there,” said Catholic Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond.

He added that the archdiocese will use its resources and facilities  to avoid entering into any business relationships with persons or businesses, regardless of religious affiliation, “that are essential to making this abortion facility a reality.”

Construction of the new $4.2 million, 8,000-foot Planned Parenthood building at 4636 South Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans is set to begin this year, with the facility, which will perform abortions, opening sometime in 2014.  The City of New Orleans approved the construction permit for the abortion office on Dec. 5, 2013.

In a Catholic city like New Orleans, this edict is bound to be effective. You help build that abortion mill, you forget about working for the Archdiocese. Good for Archbishop Aymond.
